-What is the difference between a camp and clinic?
The camps provide in-depth skill-work where participants will learn specialized techniques to maximize performance over a few days of workouts. Clinics provide a one-day broader view of these same skills and drills.
-Do you have to pick one camp/clinic/academy when they are scheduled for the same time?
Each of the clinic, camp and Academy services scheduled at the same time are to help participants further understand the positions within the game of Volleyball and specialize their skills at the position they register under.
